'Common sense' for Trump to scrap travel ban: French FM
AFP, , Monday 30 Jan 2017

French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said Monday in Tehran that it would be "common sense" for US President Donald Trump to scrap a travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries, including Iran.

"I think that it would be common sense" for Trump to rescind the executive order imposing travel curbs on Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, said Ayrault at the start of a visit to Iran.

The measure was "inacceptable and very punishing for those concerned," he told members of the French community gathered at the ambassador's residence in Tehran.
